Edward Skidelsky

Edward Skidelsky studied philosophy and theology at Oxford University, where (following some time working in Russia) he returned to write a PhD on the early twentieth century German philosopher Ernst Cassirer (published in January 2009 as Ernst Cassirer: The Last Philosopher of Culture). He is now a lecturer in philosophy at Exeter University, specializing in moral and political philosophy. He has written essays on the ethics of capitalism and on the concept of happiness. His most recent book, co-written with his father, Robert, is How Much is Enough? Money and the Good Life (2012), which is being translated into fifteen languages worldwide. A following book, The Language of the Virtues, is forthcoming. Skidelsky appears regularly in the press and on radio on a variety of subjects, including philosophy, religion, and intellectual history.
